APS members and allied plant health professionals within the United States and internationally at all stages of their careers, especially those in the early and mid-career stages.
Just as doctors must have good bedside manner when dealing with patients, plant pathologists must be mindful of their “fieldside manner” when dealing with diverse stakeholder groups, ranging from growers to politicians. Plant pathologists have many opportunities to foster relationships and understanding with these individuals. These relationships are necessary to take our science to practice. Speakers will share their experiences and advice on effectively communicating and interacting with stakeholders.
Despite the best of intentions, researcher-facilitated STEM outreach activities often fall short of their intended purposes of increasing scientific literacy and introducing students to the process of scientific inquiry. To increase the impact of outreach programs that benefit STEM students and the scientist, this webinar will outline strategies that bridge the gap between the expectations and realities of the STEM classroom and research laboratory. This webinar will examine the process of developing successful collaborative partnerships that will result in recurring, curriculum-based course modules that broaden the impact of research and increase the rigor of STEM education.
Middle school and high school science teachers who want to integrate empirically-grounded research into their classrooms.
